Mathews School Board Approves 2015–16 Budget

Math­ews County Schools approved its bud­get for the 2015–16 school year last week. The county will likely pro­vide less money for schools, though the school board pro­posal includes less than a third of the $96,000 reduc­tion sug­gested by Super­in­ten­dent Dr. David Holleran. The dif­fer­ence in bud­gets lies in salary increases for teach­ers and other school employ­ees, with the school board adding a 1.5 per­cent raise on top of a sched­uled salary step whereas Holleran included the step in the 1.5 per­cent amount. Now, the bud­get goes to the Board of Super­vi­sors for consideration.
